Appalachian Trail : Hiking in the Berkshires

Combine a section hike on the 2,185-mile Appalachian Trail with restful overnights in unique accommodations. Start and end your walk with visits to quintessential New England towns, where you’ll discover a blend of history, rugged practicality, and postcard scenery. Explore the Berkshires the slow way – on two feet – to find the gems hidden in the “Purple Valley.”Try out local flavors in Lenox, one of the Berkshire's cultural center. Then hit the trail as a northbound hiker, aka ‘NoBo’ in Appalachian Trail lingo. Spend three full days on the trail, following the white blazes north, including an overnight on the summit of Mount Greylock, the highest peak in Massachusetts. Culminate your Berkshires adventure with a day in charismatic Williamstown, offering not only unbeatable trail access, but also art, architecture, boutique shops and restaurants, and small-town friendliness.
